Navy Physicians

Navy Doctors are just like those with private practices—except they deliver the same quality care onboard ships and bases all around the globe. Whether you’re helping Sailors and families around the U.S., personnel aboard an aircraft carrier, or participating in worldwide humanitarian aid, Navy Physicians have the ability to make a big difference. Our offices are brightly lit, stocked with top-of-the-line equipment and filled with patients daily. Train across many departments, fund your education and join the collaborative network of Navy Physicians.

Responsibilities:

As a Navy Physician and Officer in the Navy Medical Corps, you will help lead the highly respected Navy healthcare team as you provide high-quality medical care for Sailors, Marines, servicemembers, their families and, when called upon, humanity at large.

You will handle everything a typical physician does, such as diagnosing ailments, treating injuries and saving lives. You’ll also have the opportunity to move beyond routine:

· Work at the best military medical facilities on shore, at sea and in the field

· Join top healthcare professionals on the highly valued Navy healthcare team

· Collaborate with fellow military doctors and other healthcare officers, and partner with International Relief Teams and organizations, such as FEMA, USAID and Project Hope

· Operate as a leader within your focus area and get exposure outside your specialty

· Gain management experience that will serve you well throughout your career.

Work Environment:

Navy Physicians may serve at any one of more than 250 Navy and medical facilities around the globe, from Hawaii to Japan, Germany to Guam, and Washington, DC to Washington state.

As a Navy Physician, you could work at one of the highly acclaimed National Naval Medical Centers in Bethesda, MD; Portsmouth, VA; and San Diego, CA. Or you could provide medical support to deployed troops aboard one of two dedicated hospital ships: the USNS Comfort and USNS Mercy.

Still more opportunities are available stateside and abroad – aboard a surface ship, working closely with a nearby aircraft squadron, or even with the Fleet Marine Force.

Training & Advancement:

Upon graduation from medical school, those pursuing a Physician position are required to attend Officer Development School (ODS) in Newport, RI. ODS is a five-week program that provides a comprehensive and intense introduction to the responsibilities of Navy Staff Corps Officers. Here they learn about the military structure of the U.S. Navy, its rich history of traditions and customs, leadership development and military etiquette.

Promotion opportunities are regularly available but competitive and based on performance.
